Australian Police Warn of Shady USB Drives Appearing in Mailboxes

A person or a group of people have been dropping malicious USB sticks in mailboxes around Victoria, Australia. The State Police on Wednesday issued a warning, saying these USB drives are “believed to be extremely harmful,” urging the public not to use them.

“Upon inserting the USB drives into their computers victims have experienced fraudulent media streaming offers, as well as other serious issues,” the statement read. A Victoria police spokesperson said the USB sticks “ruin” computers they’re inserted into.
